CONFERENCE: Getting in to the Dr Seuss theme is organising committee members Kimberley Roberts, Jenna Hughes and Jenna Anderson.

Doctor Seuss’ Oh The Places You’ll Go is the inspiration behind the District Council of Lower Eyre Peninsula’s preparations to host the 80th annual Eyre Peninsula Local Government Association (EP LGA) Conference later this month.

The council plans to host an energising meet at the Cummins Institute on Tuesday, February 28.

About 180 delegates from EP’s councils as well as sponsors of the conference are expected to attend, with an informal welcome dinner planned for Monday, February 27, at the Coffin Bay Yacht Club, and a gala dinner at the Marble Range Community and Sporting Complex to wrap up the event on the Tuesday.

A works manager’s meeting and EP LGA executive meeting will also be held on the Monday.

Media personality Amanda Blair will entertain as keynote speaker, along with an impressive line-up of other speakers.

The conference includes four sessions throughout the day that echo a Dr Seuss theme.

Topics will include South Australia’s electricity supply, inter-government relationships, an update on the 2016-17 harvest and Viterra’s plans for the future, as well as Grain Producers SA’s views on transport and supply infrastructure.

The Training Guru’s Peter Arbery will discuss how leadership styles influence the legacies left, and Mentally Fit EP’s Jackie Hibble and Sue Berry will present on the five basic needs of individuals.

The two-day event will showcase local talent thanks to Just Us, the ChrissyK Band and Kaz the Light Dancer.

It will also boast local produce including seafood, honey and SAMM lamb.

Corporate services manager Sacheen Hopewell said an internal steering committee had worked hard for months to ensure the event was a success.

“We want attendees to go away energised for the year,” she said.

“We have worked to ensure attendees get to hear about a variety of topics from interesting speakers.”

Ms Hopewell thanked the many sponsors for their support of the corporate-sponsored conference. 

“We have had an excellent response from local and state-wide businesses.”
